voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2006
Magnificent looking in the glass, a very dark clear amber, with a very fluffy off-white head. Great lacing and retention. Aroma is quite strong, of floral hops with some slight caramel and chocolate. The flavours are all caramel, with some slight hop flavours and a slightly metallic finish. Another good, if unexciting dark lager from the Czechs.

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2009
Dark brown coloured body with a tan head and a bunch of bubbles. Bright aroma of roasted malt, pit fruits and a bit of earthiness. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour complete with coffee and nuts, tucked in with sugars and some mild hops. Aftertastes nice and complex - definitely a good beer. Overall, worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this pint on draught at Ferdinanda in Praha, Ceska Republica in March 2008.
